dPHOENIX -- Archie Bradley liked his strong finish to the season.The Diamondbacks right-hander struck out a career high 11, tying the clubs rookie franchise record for a single game in Arizonas 9-5 win over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night.Bradley, whose 2015 season was limited after he took a line drive off his face in April, held the Padres to two runs on seven hits and will finish 8-9 while going 4-1 over his last seven starts.It was kind of what you draw up to finish the season. You want to finish strong and send yourself into the offseason on a good note, Bradley said. It feels great. I got the last out and I turned around and it said 95 on the board. So for me it was like `All right, its October 1st and Im still able to rear back and go get it. Knock on wood thats a good sign for this offseason.Yasmany Tomas hit a three-run homer as part of Arizonas five-run first inning, and the Diamondbacks stole six bases, including a franchise record-tying four in the first inning. Paul Goldschmidt had a career high three stealsBradley got a bit of a scare on a standout defensive play to end the top of the fifth. He flagged down a ball hit off his glove, picked it up and threw out Yangervis Solarte while falling toward third base.That was really close to my face again, Bradley said. I was like All right, Im going to pick up this ball and it may go into the third deck, but Im going to see what I can do here, and it worked out.Manager Chip Hale admitted being concerned, but said it was a positive that Bradley got through a whole season after the 2015 injury.Pitching the whole year, staying injury free was huge. He learned so much, Hale said.The Diamondbacks have won the first two games of this series to pull into a tie with the Padres for fourth place in the NL West heading into Sundays season finale.Clayton Richard (3-4) gave up four earned runs and six hits with four walks in 4 1/3 innings for the Padres.Three San Diego errors, a wild pitch and a passed ball aided the Diamondbacks, who have won three of four. Two runs had already scored in the first -- on a passed ball and a single by Brandon Drury -- when Tomas took Richard deep for his 31st home run.Goldschmidt scored after stealing second and third in the fifth, racing home on a missed catch by Solarte. Mitch Haniger homered in the eighth, and Jean Segura was 2 for 3 and scored three runs.If theres opportunity, just try to take it, Goldschmidt said. It makes it a lot easier on the offense. Not any different than any other game, it just happened to work out tonight.Seguras 93 hits in the second half of the season are the most in club history, breaking A.J. Pollocks record of 92 in 2015.Carlos Asuaje, Wil Myers, Derek Norris, Hunter Renfroe and Solarte each drove in a run for San Diego. Renfroe just missed his fourth home run of the week when he doubled off the top of the right-field fence in the eighth off the Diamondbacks Zack Godley.The Padres scored three runs in the inning.The first inning as a team, we were playing under water, it felt like, Richard said. A little bit slow and sluggish. We left some plays on the field. It wasnt one person, collectively, myself included.PAYING A VISITPadres manager Andy Green visited with players and staff from the teams instructional league at spring training headquarters in nearby Peoria, Arizona, before Saturdayss game. He watched batting practice and a couple of innings of a game.Theyre all hungry there, theres a ton of energy there, Green said. The more time you spend around those guys, the more you appreciate them and the more you get to know them.TRAINERS ROOMPadres: INF Jemile Weeks had his hamstring re-evaluated by noted sports physician Dr. James Andrews, and it was determined surgery was not the best option. ... C-OF Christian Bethancourt (strained intercostal) is being looked at as a pitcher and threw a bullpen session at the Padres Arizona facility Saturday.Diamondbacks: C Welington Castillo was given a day off from catching in favor of youngster Oscar Hernandez. Hale said Castillo has a sore shoulder from taking some bumps and foul tips, but that Castillo could be back in on Sunday. ... Tomas returned to the lineup despite upper back soreness. ... Sundays scheduled starter, Matt Koch, is dealing with a blister. If he gets to 85 pitches, well be happy, Hale said.UP NEXTPadres: RHP Paul Clemens (4-5) is set for the season finale. Hes allowed three earned runs or fewer in nine of 11 starts as a Padre this season.Diamondbacks: Koch (1-1) will be making his second career start. Pedro Chirivella Jersey . Spiller left Week 3s 27-20 loss to the New York Jets with a thigh injury, but fully practiced with the team all week and expects to be ready to go on Sunday. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Liverpool Jersey . The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday. http://www.liverpoolgear.us/Authentic-Trent-Alexander-Arnold-Liverpool-Jersey/ .

The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. Fabinho Jersey . LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. HOUSTON -- Dallas Keuchel had another strong outing for the Houston Astros on Monday night. He just needed more help than George Springers leadoff homer.Austin Romine hit a tiebreaking double in the eighth inning to make a winner of Michael Pineda, and the New York Yankees bullpen did just fine without star closer Aroldis Chapman in a 2-1 victory over the Astros.Hours after New York traded Chapman to the Chicago Cubs, All-Star relievers Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller closed out Houston to help the fourth-place Yankees (51-48) move three games above .500 for the first time this season.Betances struck out the side in the eighth before Miller, back in the ninth-inning role following Chapmans departure, earned his eighth save. The fired-up lefty pumped his fist when he got Carlos Gomez to ground into a game-ending double play with two on.A frustrated Gomez spiked his helmet and kicked at the ground after he was out at first base.Thats sort of how they drew up their pitching, Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. They have really good arms, and they had really good nights. We had a hard time solving them except for the first pitch of the game.Pineda (5-9) pitched seven strong innings to beat Keuchel (6-10), the Yankees nemesis who won last years AL Cy Young Award.Keuchel gave up two runs and six hits with five strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings. He has allowed two runs or fewer in four straight starts.He was pretty good, Hinch said. I thought the finish on his pitches were good. I thought the command of his pitches were good.The left-hander retired 13 of his first 14 batters. The only hit he gave up was Romines single in the third until Didi Gregorius double in the fifth.I felt like today was the first time even through this whole stretch that I was able to command both sides of the plate, Keuchel said. Fastballs to both sides. The only thing lacking were a few sliders to Romine.Luis Valbuena had three hits for Houston, which had won four straight. Top prospect Alex Bregman went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in his major league debut.Not as planned because we didnt win, but I had a lot of fun, Bregman said. Its pretty awesome playing in the big leagues.ddddddddddddSpringers fifth leadoff home run of the year was the 11th for the Astros this season, surpassing the previous club record of 10 set in 2001.Romines double to deep center field scored Chase Headley, who singled to start the eighth.Headley singled in the fifth to drive in Gregorius, tying it at 1.Pineda allowed five hits and struck out eight in his second straight solid outing after throwing six scoreless innings Wednesday against Baltimore.The big right-hander retired 14 of 15 during one stretch, but ran into trouble in the sixth. He loaded the bases with two outs before Bregman flied out to the right-field warning track.He obviously threw the ball well, Springer said. You have to tip your cap. He made his pitches, and then they closed it down.BIG DEALChapman was sent to the Cubs for pitcher Adam Warren and three minor league prospects.TRAINERS ROOMAstros: INF Marwin Gonzalez sat out after spraining his left ankle in the fifth inning Sunday. Hes doing OK, Hinch said. We are keeping him out of some baseball activities to monitor his ankle. Well give him the day off, but I would really like him to play tomorrow if hes capable.A-ROD OPTIMISTICYankees DH Alex Rodriguez was out of the lineup for a third straight game. Rodriguez, who is 4 for 31 with one home run in July, is batting .206 this season with nine home runs and 29 RBI, but hes optimistic after speaking to the teams sabermetrics department. Theres no question that for the first two months, my mechanics were out of whack, Rodriguez said. I think I found something, and Im excited to put it into play.UP NEXTYankees: LHP CC Sabathia (5-8) will start his 18th game of the season Tuesday. Sabathia has allowed 31 runs -- 29 earned -- in his last 35 innings, spanning six starts.Astros: RHP Doug Fister (10-6) will make his 20th start of the season and look to follow up one of his best outings of the year when he threw seven scoreless innings Wednesday at Oakland.
